Resolution on Vaccine Hesitancy
In a resolution (Tuesday March 20th) MEPs stated their concern that current evidence shows gaps in vaccine coverage and hesitancy among the public to be vaccinated against vaccine preventable diseases. They are worried this will result in the public not being adequately protected. They also noted that the consequences of vaccine hesitancy has already resulted in measles outbreaks in European countries. That assumption fails however, to recognise standard epidemiological facts.
